[iPad 2 vs. iPad 1st Gen Reviews]How does iPad 2 beats the iPad first generation ?

The original iPad lacked a lot as compared to the new released iPad 2. Of course, this goes for every hardware that’s one or more generations old but things are mighty different for a first generation device, especially one when creating a new platform. In spite of all this, Apple sold 15 million iPads in 2010 over a period spanning nine months. Here’s the comparison between the 2010 iPad and the new iPad 2 model introduced on March 2nd, 2011. Compare by yourself how iPad 2 beats the iPad first generation.

A comparison chart of iPad vs. iPad 2nd Generation

Explore detailed features for iPad vs. iPad 2
Design:
While the iPad 2′s screen is still the same 9.7 inch as the previous one, the thickness has been decreased by 33%. As compared to 13.4mm, iPad 2 is only 8.8mm. The weight has decreased from 1.5 pounds to 1.3 pounds. The iPad 2 will be offered in both black and white right from day one. So that’s a new option we see in iPads.

Processor:
The previous iPad’s A4 processor has been replaced by a 1Ghz A5 processor on the iPad 2. While A5 consumes low power just like the A4, it is a dual-core processor offering upto 2x speeds on the iPad 2. Similary, the upgraded GPU is said to be upto 9 times faster than previous model. We saw one glimpse of this during the Photo Booth Demo where different video streams were being rendered in real time.

Camera:
Ask anyone what do you want to change in the original iPad? The first suggestion, as you might have already guessed, is a camera. While we can’t not do without a rear camera, a front camera is a must.
The new iPad 2 has two new cameras. Just like the iPod Touch 4G, front camera captures VGA quality video at 30fps. Rear camera is capable of capturing 720p HD Video with audio. Stills with 5x digital zoom can also be taken from the rear camera.

Price:
If you have been following Apple for a while, which you really do if you are a regular CallingAllGeeks Reader, you would know that Apple refreshes the product line once every year with new and better specs but maintains the previous price point. Likewise, iPad 2′s prices remain unchanged.

New Apps exclusive to iPad 2:
There are two new iPad applications which will come preinstalled on the iPad 2 once it hits the stores on March 2nd. The two apps FaceTime and PhotoBooth obviously won’t come to the original iPad due to the lack of a camera. Though we’ve seen hackers enabling FaceTime on iPad 1 to receive video and voice chat. By the way, iPad 2 comes out with Apple iOS 4.3 which features with significant improvements on AirPlay and Safari performance.

Video mirroring and Movie playback:
iPad 2 supports video mirroring. With HDMI cable iPad 2 outputs video to HDTV or projectorsup to 1080p. Perfect for making that college or office presentation. Like iPad 1st Gen, the iPad 2 plays H.264 and MPEG-4 video up to 720p, 30 frames in MP4, MOV and M4V format. But with the help of a transcoding tool like Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate, you can easily put DVDs, Blu-rays and all kinds of videos to iPad and iPad 2 for playback.

So, I believe I’ve done a little more than scratching just the surface of the iPad 2 here. Thinner, faster and FaceTime capable iPad 2 really beats its predecessor.

[Great Tips]How to put/play iPad 2 movies/videos to Apple TV via AirPlay




With Apple iOS 4.3, enjoying movies becomes even easier —the wireless technology AirPlay lets you stream content (music, movies) from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV. So you can instantly share iPad 2 movies with everyone in the room. Have you managed to try AirPlay of the new iPad 2nd Gen? Follow this guide to rip Blu-ray and DVD movies to iPad 2 and then send iPad 2 videos to Airplay enabled Apple TV for sharing.

Part 1. Put Blu-ray/DVD movie to iPad 2 Movie library
You can download a trial of Pavtube Mac Blu-ray to iPad 2 Converter software for ripping Blu-ray movies to iPad 2 videos.

Step 1. Load Blu-ray movie to Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.
Hook up BD drive to your Mac, put Blu-ray Disc into the drive, and run the Mac Blu-ray to iPad 2 Converter. Click “BD/DVD” folder to load 1080p Blu-ray movie (or regular DVD).

Image

Step 2. Set iPad 2 optimized video formats for conversion.
Click “Format” and follow “iPad” to select an iPad optimized format from the 3 preset video formats for iPad.
iPad HD Video (*.mp4)- iPad 720p video up to 4000kbps, the best video quality iPad plays
iPad Video H.264(*.mp4)- 768*576 video for iPad, medium quality
iPad Video MPEG-4(*.mp4)- 640*480 video, smallest file size for ripping Blu-ray movies to iPad friendly format.

Image

Tip: to reduce file size/conversion time, just click “Settings” and set a smaller bitrate (e.g. 2000kbps) before the Blu-ray to iPad 2 video conversion starts.

Step 3. Convert Blu-ray movie to iPad 2 supported video format.
Click “Convert” button to start ripping Blu-ray to iPad 2 videos. The faster your Mac computer is, the shorter it takes to convert 1080p Blu-ray movie to iPad 2 videos. When the conversion is finished, you can click “Open” button to get the final output files with ease. Now you are ready to sync video files to iPad 2.

Part 2.Play iPad videos via AirPlay enabled Apple TV
To send video or audio to an AirPlay enabled Apple TV device, iPad and the AirPlay device must be connected to the same wireless network.

Step 1. Connect Apple TV with HDTV, and setup the Airplay enabled Apple TV for watching Blu-ray movies on HDTV thru Airplay.
Step 2. To send video an AirPlay device from iPad, just play videos from iPad 2 movie library, and press the “Airplay” button at the end of control bar of iPad 2 as it shows below. If you don’t see the button, iPad isn’t connected to the same Wi-Fi network as an AirPlay device, or the app you’re using doesn’t support AirPlay.

When iPad is streaming with AirPlay, it must remain connected to the Wi-Fi network. If you take iPad out of range, playback stops.

What does AirPlay mean to iPad 2 and Apple TV 2?

What is Apple’s AirPlay?
In case you haven’t been following along, AirPlay is the ability to wirelessly stream audio and video from a device like an iPad 2 to your 2nd generation Apple TV. The Apple’s AirPlay tech lets you stream music photos and video throughout your entire house wirelessly so you can enjoy your entire iTunes library in any room and anytime. It’s essentially and enhancement on the existing AirTunes feature that already let you stream audio from iTunes to an AirPort Express router so that you could pipe your tunes directly into a connected receiver. AirPlay wireless technology will be fully integrated into Apple devices, speaker docks, AV receivers, and stereo systems. AirPlay does more than just stream your music to external speakers. It streams information about your music, too. Song titles, artists, album names, elapsed and remaining time, and album artwork all appear on AirPlay-enabled speakers with graphical displays.

iPad with AirPlay
iPad can be more amazing with AirPlay tech. Apple iOS 4.3 includes upgrade of AirPlay for iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone and Apple TV devices. AirPlay now lets you stream media from an iPad to Apple TV so that you can watch iPad movies on HDTV and speakers wirelessly. All the great stuff on your iPad, video, audio and photos can be streamed to Apple TV 2 without a hitch. Suppose you have great HD videos on your iPad and some friends on your couch, or you’re in the middle of an epic action scene that could use a little more screen, just tap the AirPlay icon on your iPad and see it on your HDTV.

Image

(Tip: Make sure your iPad and Apple TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and the AirPlay icon appears automatically.)

Apple AirPlay Hands on-iPad video and music on HDTV
iOS 4.2 let me stream content from the iPad to the new Apple TV that was connected to a 55-inch TV. After connecting the Apple TV to a wireless network, I tapped the TV icon located in the upper-left portion of the iPad's iPod section, and selected Apple TV. I started Blondie's "Heart of Glass" and was surprised how quickly Apple TV recognized it. A second or two later, and the music was blaring through the TV's speakers. I was impressed with the simplicity of the process. Bringing up the on-screen media controls by double tapping the Home button let me access the aforementioned media controls.

Image

I streamed TV episodes and home movies from the iPad to Apple TV without a hitch. My Blu-ray movie rip Toy Story 3 looked just fine on the big screen. For the techies out there, the file specs are: 1280×720 in .mp4 at 2000kbps with stereo sound (it seems 5.1 sounds are losing after upgrade to iOS 4.3, and I had to convert AC3 5.1 to stereo with Video Converter software to get the sound back). I also streamed photos to Apple TV; naturally those of higher resolution looked sharper and clearer on the large display.

Image

The system is dead-easy. Just make sure that your i-device and your Apple TV are on the same wireless network. Then choose your app: iPod for video or music, the Photos app for, well, photos and the YouTube app for, uh, you get the idea. Once your media is playing or your photo is displayed, simply tap the little rectangle pierced with upwards-pointing triangle icon and choose “Apple TV” from the list that pops up.

As of right now, the only apps that can send video wirelessly via AirPlay to the Apple TV is the Video app on the iPad (iPod app on the iPhone/iPod Touch) and Apple’s own YouTube and Photos apps.

If you have content on your iPad or iPhone that you don’t have on your Mac/PC, then I suppose it’s handy to be able to stream that content to the Apple TV without the need of a middle-man device. And you may also rip Blu-ray movies to iPad for streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay.

To me, a pretty icon is a plus, but not the deciding factor. The app's purpose matters the most (e.g. Air Video could have a one-colour box as an icon, I would still have snatched it up for ten times more than it cost), followed by the description and the screenshots. The higher the price, the more intense my reviews-reading becomes, too. The icon is the cherry on the digital cake, appreciated, but I'll certainly eat a delicious pie even with a slightly shriveled fruit topping it. iPad Magic I use ZAGG �C InvisibleSHIELD with anti glare. You can get it from their web site or you can get one from best buy. Keeps finger prints, scratchs, glare off the screen. It works very well for me. It's not to hard to apply onto iPad jus take your time. It's not to thick it feels like the regular screen. I recommend it
